flea the city of goma in a democratic republic of congo. after authorities warned volcano is about to erupt for the 2nd time in a week. scientists fear a 2nd, the russian could be catastrophic. then germany stepped up its corona, virus vaccination drive children 12 and over will be able to get a job from next month. ah. hello, i'm terry barton. good to have you with us. it's taken nearly 6 years of talks, but today germany is for the 1st time acknowledging that it committed genocide during its colonial rule in what is now namibia in southern africa, german troops massacred tens of thousands of herrera and number of people between 19 o 4908. now, more than a 100 years later, it has reached a deal with
9:02 am
a government in namibia on how to atone for the atrocities. this small plotkin berlin's no current district remains the only visible memorial in germany of the violence committed in the media. now foreign minutes, the high co mass has announced germany will finally recognize the atrocities as genocide. 1.1000000000 years will be given to support development in namibia focused on herrera nama communities. between 19041908 german imperial forces in what was then known as german south. west africa violently suppressed uprisings by the nama and herrera ethnic groups, and forced them into the, does it tens of thousands of herrera and nama was shot, starved, and tortured to death by german troops. it is estimated that 3 quarters of the herrera and half of the nama people were wiped out. it took an entire century for a german politician to even recognize it happened tracking. i ask you to give us
9:03 am
our trespass. precipices and our guilt. but the german government of the time back to peddled, saying the minister had spoken as a private pass and herero nama groups, have consistently demanded an official apology and financial reparations from the german government. for what historians consider the 20th century is 1st genocide. germany has insisted on negotiating a reconciliation deal with the namibian government, not the victims descendant germany is just beginning to reckon with its colonial pass. this reconciliation deal is one step in that direction. in florida, joined by a political correspondent in mine was shaw's. m. a. german officials have been negotiating with namibia and the herrera and nama peoples for years. how did
9:04 am
they finally reached this deal? well, it had, the german government has actually neglect, isn't. and then the median government, instead of negotiating directly with the communities impacted, which is one of the specially so end up with forward, it has been a long time in the making more than 5 years. 6 years of negotiations. and these highly symbolic gesture, today with 4, i mean, is the high command saying that germany acknowledge the genocide and we refer to such as of now this has been more than a century for more than a century. it has been subjected to debate. here in germany and of course today, this is highly significant, gemini, off for forgiveness to the media for crimes committed doing its colonial rule. now in addition to recognizing its colonial era crimes, as genocide, germany is also put together. it's also put together financial aid package for
9:05 am
namibia and for the river. and now people tell us more about that. well, this has long been a bone of contention in those negotiations because germany refuses to, to give compensation, which is why what the herero and my community were asking for. instead, gemini pledges to commit to budget a 1100000000 years, but that that's about $1340000000.00 in order to support the media financially and to support development of the hero and communities. however, the representative of the traditional herrera and nama communities would have liked germany to significantly, you know, agreed to give compensation, you know, in a way to atone for the past. so even if that's a forward between the relation between germany and the media,
9:06 am
this still some work to do, i've asked for attendant with regards to the community directly impacted of course, is much more to germany's colonial legacy there. collections of looted art and even body parts in german museums from africa. how is all that being dealt with? well, that's a very little known fact here, at least in germany and in europe, is up at tens of thousands of body parts and the coast to remain in the basement of museums of libraries of universities here and descendants of the hero. and now my community is also off for the return of those looted body parts, so they can give proper burials to their ancestors and dusty something that remains to be addressed by the german government. such as such is also the return of newton art or political corresponding mental assurance. thank you very much.

9:16 am
single spelled out at the u foreign ministers meeting in lisbon. this is exactly what they were discussing. the you has already banned about routine airlines from the skies. next up on the agenda. economic sanctions this is actually we've seen from lucas shinkel in bella. ruth had a terrorist character. it was so an acceptable that we're not ruling anything out session we're discussing who should be added to the sanctions. let's list of that. that could include companies like the potassium fertilizer factory. last august, workers went on to protest, luca shame, who after he claimed a 6 terminology following you, disputed election money from state enterprises like this is crucial to the regime survival. the you hope that sanctioning memo hit the regime heart. but as you was taking a cover stance on bell of ruth, tensions with russia are also increasing. both countries for decades have been linked by a political tact since the crisis broke out,
9:17 am
moscow has increased its backing for its allies. we know we have not says that the west stops demonizing those. it doesn't like the bella, ruthie, and authorities immediately after the incident announced that they were ready to conduct a transparent and open investigation list. you can create them are asleep when you this crisis is playing out on the eastern frontiers on beller is as border with lithuania journalists gathered to protest on behalf of their jail colleagues. the fate of rum on part of it and other reporters like him has become the latest flashpoint in europe. the relationship with its autocratic neighbors. germany plans to offer corona virus vaccines to children from the age of 12 starting next month transfer. and the medical analysis policy. after talks with regional leaders,
9:18 am
the biotech pfizer vaccine is likely to become the 1st to be approved for use on children under 16 in the e. u. but germany's vaccine commission is still debating whether it's recommend they take the shot, the katie attrition. and the last step back is already administering the vaccine to kids from the age of 16, he'd like to lower that age further in on this, this cannot improve. i think it is very important to vaccinate children because we have seen in the pediatric practice how children and young people have been somehow gotten over the last dumb and yet they're often thought to pass on the virus on your devices, on health, ministry and fun. have been pushing for the mirror. he even proposed reserving over 6000000 vaccine doses for children aged 12 to 15. instead, they can now join the rush for a vaccination appointment when the prioritization of vulnerable age groups is
9:19 am
listed on june. the 7th that germany's vaccination watchdog is concerned about the lack of, of level data on possible side effects in children. it will likely only recommend the job to kids with pre existing conditions. these children are most at risk of severe illness. we can why in the circle once we gain more experience about the age group of light that comes, that seems remain a precious commodity in germany, where millions of more vulnerable adults have yet to be inoculated against codes of 19. so there's plenty of skepticism about enabling children to join all those competing for a vaccine. japan is set to extend the current of our state of emergency in tokyo and other areas to june 20th that's would be about one month before the expected opening ceremony of the summer olympics. japan is seen a record number of covered 1900 patients in critical condition and recent days,
9:20 am
even as the number of new infections has slowed, its feared that lifting the emergency would cause an instant rebound in infections with some hospitals already overflowing with patients. or for more now we're joined by michael 10, a journalist in tokyo like we just heard there that the government looks set to extend the state of emergency in tokyo and other areas. what is the cobra 19 situation there right now? well, japan is still in the midst of its 4th cold wave, which has actually been the deadliest so far in terms of the number of cases, it was similar to the size of the 3rd wave. what's different about this time? is that the coven that is driving this particular wave is the u. k, or kent variance of cold, which is a little bit more infectious than the original covert 19. and essentially,
9:21 am
although the number of new cases is now beginning to fall, the number of deaths, which is usually lagging a few weeks behind, is actually right about a peak at the moment. there have been growing calls by the public and the medical community to to cancel the olympic games due to the concerns over the number covered 900 cases. do you think the government will give in well, there's no fine of that. you know, to be honest, there's really, this is the number one issue in japan by far about 80 percent of the public wants the government to cancel or delay the olympics to not hold them the summer. and the government is basically adamantly saying, we're going to hold them no matter what. and this is very much also the position of the international olympic committee, which has been making statements of the sort like, you know, japan, that we are the only ones who can cancel them and we're not going to do so. so
9:22 am
essentially the position of the authorities is the lympics are going to happen, no matter what. and so that's so that's where it stands at the moment. okay, we're gonna have to leave it there are journalists, michael pen in tokyo, thank you very much. thank you. say hook, now some of the other developments in the pandemic. india has reported the lowest daily number of new covered 1900 cases and over a month. but critics continue to warn that official figures could be far off the actual number of infections and deaths. the cove ex vaccine sharing program says it's 190000000 doses short of its june target that's it's calling on wealthy countries to donate more of their supplies and russia will supply unicef. would sputnik be if the vaccine receives emergency approval from the world health organization? lesbians, gay men and other sexual minorities,
